    Hey guys, I'm not sure if this is the right section for this question so if it's not please point me in the right direction (constructively)

    Anyway, I'm trying to make a google spreadsheet to track influencers I've reached out to and ones that I haven't. I have a column in said spreadsheet that automatically updates the amount of likes their facebook page has except I've had some issues with this. It appears with facebooks v2.2 API that you need an "access token" in order to see pages data... I had originally gotten an access token from their API explorer but I believe it was only a temporary access token.

    Does anyone have any idea where I can get a permanent access token that won't expire for this purpose? The only permanent ones I've found are if you "create" an app (you don't actually have to build one) they give you an access token but that one didn't work for this purpose.
